SOUTHSEA MODEL VILLAGE

SOUTHSEA MODEL VILLAGE
SOUTHSEA MODEL VILLAGE

Southsea Model Village is a delightful 1:12 scale village built in 1956.  This has all the features you would expect – a church, pub, shops, river, railway – and of course its own castle.  The attraction includes a picnic area and play houses as well as scale models of Portsmouth’s Guildhall and Spinnaker Tower.  The latter are located in the 125 foot long rifleman's tunnel, part of the remains of Portsmouth’s 19th century city defences.  The village is actually built into Lumps Fort, a fortification that began life in the 18th century and which has also been taken over by the nearby Rose Garden.  Southsea Model Village is situated close to the sea front and Southsea’s canoe lake.
